About Us

Meet Our Team

Reece Kennedy – Director

Reece’s professional background began as an electrical apprentice at the young age of seventeen. In the final year of his apprenticeship, this go-getter then began his entrepreneurial journey by embarking on his first business, Total Electrics and Air Conditioning. As his experience and knowledge grew as well as his passion for a long-term sustainable future for Australia, he launched Total Solar Solutions Australia in 2012.

Reece is making an impact on the solar industry in Australia. What sets him apart is his mission to provide consumers with the highest quality solar products, which offer product longevity, adequate warranties and local technical support. This is packaged with installation by his highly qualified team, whose workmanship is focused on skill as well as customer service. He still loves to get out on the tools with his team and gains a lot of pride from watching his workforce deliver to consumers.

In his personal time, you will find Reece volunteering for the Knox Club Sport Fishing Club, camping with his family and supporting his favourite AFL team, Hawthorn Hawks.

Christine Kennedy – General Manager

Christine’s obsession with great customer service stemmed from her experience working for the Melbourne City Council and as a ‘Director of First Impressions’ in the Barry Plant Group along with other corporate roles until late 2017, when she decided to combine her skills and passion for renewable energy.

Her ability to connect with clients, understand their requirements and communicate this clearly to her team ensures that every installation is completed with the highest quality workmanship and customer care.

Her passion for providing positive customer outcomes led her to join the ‘Industry and Consumer Reference Group’ for Solar Victoria in 2020. She is also a founding member of Australian Women in Solar Energy (AWISE).

He has a lot of experience and technical knowledge with solar and batteries and enjoys advising customers on how best to improve their home or business with a well-designed quality solar system.

Matt – Business Development Manager

Matt is a friendly voice to guide customers through the solar and air conditioning process. From first phone call, his focus is designing a system which matches the individual needs of each client.
